Paper Abstract

Wavelet based compression is getting popular due to its promising compaction properties at low bitrate. Zerotree wavelet image coding scheme efficiently exploits multi-level redundancy present in transformed data to minimize coding bits. In this paper, a new technique is proposed to achieve high compression by adding new zerotree and significant symbols to original EZW coder. Contrary to four symbols present in basic EZW scheme, modified algorithm uses eight symbols to generate fewer bits for a given data. Subordinate pass of EZW is eliminated and replaced with fixed residual value transmission for easy implementation. This modification simplifies the coding technique as well and speeds up the process, retaining the property of embeddedness.
